Chrome is one of the best browsers for good reason, and part of that reason is due to the ability to install various extensions. These extensions can fill in a gap that is not a part of Chrome, or give you access to some of your favorite apps and services without needing to switch between apps. There are a lot of extensions for you to take advantage of, but these are our favorite for working from home (and more).

Extensions aren't the only reason why you should use Chrome, as it's a great browser even when completely stripped down and barebones. But, the Chrome app on your computer is really an operating system within an operating system (unless you have a Chromebook or Chromebox). There are a ton of apps and extensions to get your work done in ways that you never thought were possible.

The best part about all of this is that new extensions are being released or updated with new features regularly. So just because you are looking for something specific today and it's not there, doesn't mean that it won't be there tomorrow. Chrome is the king of browsers, and extensions are a big part of why.
